I asked my daughter Erin for suggestions for the blog and she asked me to include my Pizza Burger recipe. This recipe was a favorite of mine when I was a kid. (In fact, every child I know loves Pizza Burgers.) My mother made it and kept a batch in the freezer so we could just scoop out some of the topping, put it on a hamburger bun or an English muffin and broil it for lunch, supper or anytime we wanted.
Since I haven’t made Pizza Burgers for many years, I do not have a picture of them. Oh well. I guess you’ll just have to see a picture of the beautiful, young woman who requested the recipe. 🙂
Serves an army
1-1/2 lb. lean hamburger
1 medium can Spam
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or Velveeta)
1 small onion, chopped fine
1 tsp. oregano
1 8-oz. can tomato sauce
1 small can tomato paste
Salt and pepper
Brown hamburger and onion. Add salt and pepper. Drain and cool. Shred Spam and mix with hamburger. Stir in remaining ingredients until everything is thoroughly mixed. The Pizza Burger mix freezes well.
Spread a thin layer (about 1/4 inch) on one side of a hamburger bun or English muffin and broil until cheese is melted and the top is a bit toasted (about 5 minutes). Eat hot.
